Netflix and Tyler Perry are partnering up on yet another project with Mea Culpa, a new thriller that Perry will produce alongside singer-actress Kelly Rowland, who is also set to star. Here’s everything you need to know about Mea Culpa coming to Netflix in late February 2023.

The project has been in development for quite some time but was transferred over to Netflix in January 2023, which is when we first learned about the project. Sadly, Netflix did not provide an official comment at the time, but the project was officially unveiled on February 23rd, 2023.

Tyler Perry is on board to direct, produce, and write. This will be Perry’s fifth major project for Netflix following A Fall From Grace, A Madea Homecoming, A Jazzman’s Blues, and Six Triple Eight. Also upcoming is another Madea movie and new comedy called Joe’s College Road Trip.

Will Areu and Angi Bones are also producers on the movie in addition to Rowland and Perry and serving as casting directors as Kim Coleman and Rhavynn Drummer.

On Instagram, when the project was officially confirmed, Perry posted: “Get ready for a crazy sexy thriller!!”


What’s Mea Culpa on Netflix about?

Only a short logline was provided for the crime legal drama early on in the project, but we’ve since been provided with an extended synopsis:

“When criminal defense attorney Mea Harper (Kelly Rowland) takes on the murder case of artist Zyair Malloy (Trevante Rhodes), the truth isn’t as obvious as it seems. While she tries to determine the innocence or guilt of her cagy-yet-seductive client, it is uncovered that everyone is guilty of something. Tyler Perry’s Mea Culpa explores what happens when burning desire takes hold and things get hot… and dangerous.”

We’re still awaiting first look pictures and a trailer for the upcoming movie.

They added, “The filming dates are set at March 6-24 and the location is Atlanta and Chicago,” and added that the only story details at that point were “Boy meets girl is not so simple when chaos ensues.”

On February 28th, CBS News Atlanta reported that the production was actively seeking extras.

The production coincides with Perry’s other movie, currently filming in the form of Six Triple Eight, which began filming in the UK in early 2023 and is scheduled to wrap in April 2023.


When will Mea Culpa be on Netflix?

Netflix confirmed the release date (h/t NewonNetflix.info) via its media center in January 2024, with the movie set to release globally on February 23rd, 2024, at midnight PST.
